The most common causes of hoarseness found in 393 patients older than 65 years were vocal fold bowing and unilateral vocal fold paralysis, followed by benign vocal fold lesions, voice tremor, and spasmodic dysphonia, and objective measures of vocal function were abnormal compared with reported normative data, but they did not increase in severity with advancing age.
